WRT Widget orientation switch/rotate can be done using widget.setDisplayLandscape and widget.setDisplayPortrait if widget supports those screen orientations.

API's needed are as below:

isrotationsupported is a read-only property that returns a Boolean value determining if the device supports landscape and portrait screen orientations. If the value is true, the device supports both landscape and portrait screen orientations.

The setDisplayLandscape method changes the orientation of a widget's screen to the landscape mode.

The setDisplayPortrait method changes the orientation of a widget's screen to the portrait mode.

  • Example on switch to Landscape Mode:
if (widget.isrotationsupported){
// Lets change the screen orientation to Landscape.
